justice john roberts, jr. the public swearing-in and all the pomp and circumstance that go with it were put off until today and what a day it is. the temperature right now is in the high 30s. the sky is clear, a brilliant winter's day in the nation's capital. people are pouring into the national mall to witness a day of history. the first family began the day by attending services at st. john's church. that's right across the street from the white house. that's a long-standing tradition for presidents on inauguration day. joining me now in our cbs coverage is bob schieffer, our chief washington correspondent and anchor of ""face the nation."" bob, what are you expecting to see? >> well, it's going to be an important day for the nation, but i must say, you know, the fiscal cliff negotiations, the slaughter of those children in connecticut made it difficult for washington to be festive this time around. it's also a very unusual atmosphere because of this gridlock. i mean, you're not hearing people talk about hope and renewal this time around, but is the government broken? the whole system
. although the u.s. senate acted last month on sandy relief, it has taken john boehner's republican-controlled house 78 days since the storm to pass this bill responding to the storm. in the end, on the republican side, it ended up being a grudging vote for sandy relief. republicans voted against sandy relief by a 3-1 margin. the bill was only able to pass because a minority of republicans joined with democrats to get it done in the house. even though the senate already passed its version of hurricane sandy relief last year, last month, the senate bill has to be redone because it took the house so long to get their side of it done. the senate is expected to get their side done again shortly. and then the president says he will sign the measure into law. >>> and tonight, in further breaking news, as slow as house republicans were to act in response to hurricane sandy, tonight's other major news is about how fast new york state was able to move to respond to a different kind of disaster. tonight one month and one day after the mass shooting at sandy hook elementary school in newtown,

. >> and in his press conference, president obama quoted speaker john boehner from 2011. >> that would be a financial disaster, not only for our country but for the worldwide economy. i don't think it is a question that is even on the table. >> and the last question of his press conference, the president was asked if he may be more successful with some of the nuts you just heard from if he spent more quality time with them. >> you and your staff are too insular, that you don't socialize enough. >> this, of course, is one of the great myths of governing, that intractable problems, political problems, can somehow be solved over a card game and a couple of drinks. that has never, ever been the case nor will it ever be the case. >> i like speaker boehner personally. and you know, when we went out and played golf we had a great time. but that didn't get a deal done in 2011. >> the president actually had to remind the media that congressional behavior is the result of democracy. >> now if the american people feel strongly about these issues and they push hard and they reward, or don't reward

immediate spending cuts, as house speaker john boehner earlier promised. instead, it would force congress to pass a budget or go without being paid. the government could reach the current debt ceiling by mid-february. ray nagin, the mayor of new orleans during hurricane katrina, has been indicted on charges for corruption. a federal grand jury accused him today of bribery, wire fraud, and money laundering while in office. nagin was the city's mayor from 2002 until 2010. two former new orleans officials and two businessmen have already pleaded guilty in the case. u.s. attorney general eric holder today defended president obama's moves to curb gun violence. the president signed 23 executive orders this week, calling for such things as more research into gun violence. today, in washington, holder told the u.s. conference of mayors that there's no question the orders are legal. >> now let me be very clear. let me be very clear. not one of these executive orders contrary to what a few have said impinges upon anyone's second amendment rights or are inconsistent with the historical use of execut
second term administration. the president was officially sworn in by chief justice john roberts yesterday at the blue room at the white house as the first lady and the obama daughters looked on. but in the little less than two hours the president will affirm that oath before a much larger crowd with 100% more pomp and an equal proportion of circumstance. we have a stellar group of guests joining us throughout the day. honestly, to cut to the chase, it is pretty much everybody you know from msnbc. plus, visits with some members of the obama administration, folks from congress, we'll have live reports from the capitol and all along the parade route. and who knows what surprises along the way. it will be a fun day. reverend al sharpton and chris hayes are joining us onset as the day goes along. alongside me are melissa maris perry, ed schultz and the one and only chris matthews. mr. matthews, this is, i think of this as chris christmas. >> i think of the alternative it could be today. john bolden becoming secretary of state, the coke brothers up on the podium with donald trump, it is not tha

democrats to vote in favor of it. it marks the second time now that house speaker john boehner has broken his own rule, the boehner rule, model on the hastert rule. said the speaker would not bring any bill to the floor for a vote that does not have the support of a majority of his conference, a majority of the majority, it's known as. but last night, just about 20% of the republican conference voted for the bill. the vote split the leadership, majority leader eric cantor, majority whip mccarthy voted for the bill. boehner first broke his rule on new year's day when he allowed a vote to avert the fiscal cliff on taxes. apparently there's an addendum to the boehner rule. the majority of the majority, unless the country is on the verge of a tax crisis, or chris christie has access the to a megaphone. christie made sure this week that republicans knew he would use it. >> and i'll say again, new jersey does not expect anything more than what was done for louisiana and alabama and mississippi and if they want to make new rules about disasters, they picked the wrong state to make the new rules
